Video Image for Slide / Show

I first presented Slide/Show as a PowerPoint program at the Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD), May 12, 2016, in conjunction with the exhibition “Robert Beck/Robert Buck: States of America” at the Pizzuti Collection in Columbus, OH. The slideshow of salient works traces the arc of my evolution, including the transformation of my father’s name by a single vowel, from Beck to Buck. In this context, my self-nomination operates as a cut in the continuum of my artistic development, inviting a reconsideration of my earlier work and metamorphosis après coup. As Jacques Lacan states, “One can do without the Name-of-the-Father on the condition that one makes use of it”.
